In the custom truck scene, there are few issues as divisive as 2WD versus 4WD. Truck guys may argue back and forth over which is best, but for the 4WD diehards, theres only one place to be every September: 4Wheel Jamboree Nationals in Indianapolis. The show has been going strong for over three decades, and the sheer number of lifted trucks inside the State Fairground gates proves its success. From mild daily-driven fullsizes to colossal mud boggers and monster trucks, this years 4Wheel Jamboree had something for everyone. Beginning Friday, September 14th and lasting all weekend, the shows many attractions included a world record-breaking monster truck jump, Tough Truck challenge, mud drag racing, burnout contest, tons of 4WD-oriented vendor booths, tasty carnival food, and even a bounce house for the kids.

As if all this wasn’t enough, Truckin partnered with event organizers Family Events to bring you the Throwdown Autocross Challenge. Our timed cone course welcomed all comers, and we had some fun sliding our own project Blue Bomber and our 2012 Ram 3500 tow pig around the corners as well. We drove all the way from California to make it to the 4Wheel Jamboree, so don’t miss next year’s show if you love 4WD trucks.

On the final day of the show, BIGFOOT shattered the Guinness World Records Monster Truck Long Jump record with a massive 214.8-foot leap.


This cringe-worthy moment is what happened when a brave locker-equipped Jeep owner took a corner too fast. Fortunately, he caught it just in time and finished the lap unharmed.
